Need Wholesellers/Dropshippers & Newbie Vendor Questions
Hi guys -
I'm new to the site, love the forums so far btw, and I could really use some advice. I hope I'm not posting this in the wrong spot.
I'm disabled and a web dev, and recently my ectopic endometriosis entered one of my lungs and heart. I've been taking herbs to treat my disease for years, and also have been planning an herbal site for a couple years, but now I'm finally going to finish what I've started so I can work from home.
The site isn't anywhere near ready enough right now for me to try to push it on you, so no worries 😕 I'm not doing that. It would be embarrassing if you actually looked at it now lol.
I do, however, need some tips. I'm having trouble finding a really good wholeseller or dropshipper. There's a lot of them out there, but I'm looking for one that sells the usual powders with a good range of white-green-red indos and thais, as well as full-spectrum tincture, U.E.I. and similar extracts, resin, etc.
Also I would like to find one vendor that also sells other herbs, or a second vendor if needed, because I'm planning on selling kava kava, padicularis, C.B.D., and other herbs that help with similar things like: energy, insomnia, anxiety, pain, mood, etc. (they all seem to be related don't they lol). I'm not really looking for pill form right now for these, maybe later. Sorry if my spelling sucks - it's 1am here, so I'm not checking lol. 😛
Now I'm planning to take courses so I can learn to mix remedies, but that'll take time, so if anyone knows of a vendor (who will do herbal mixtures per order) that is willing to wholesale, that would be awesome.
I do have the vendors that I personally buy from, but so far most of them don't do wholesale, or don't wholesale extracts, tinctures, resins, or mixes unfortunately.
I checked out Bikkuk for wholeselling, but they're outside the U.S., and while they have a U.S. based site too, a lot of it is out of stock. I don't know if that's normal for them, and I did contact them just in case, but I think I'll still need other vendors anyway.
As for payments - Since the D.E.A. tried to do their thing, (thanks everyone who helped us stop that btw), I'm seeing a lot of vendors had to switch their payment setup because Visa seems to be rejecting Kratom vendors. So I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on payment setups. What do you all think of Venmo, Paypal, Bitcoin, eChecks, etc. - are there ones that seem to work better, or be more secure than others?
If anyone has any tips in general for a newbie vendor, I'd really appreciate it.
I'm really just trying to avoid as many bumps in the road as I can with these questions, because I'm going to be getting a surgery pretty soon here, so sitting won't be my friend for a while lol 😛
Anyways thanks everyone, if you can offer any tips I'd really appreciate it.
Have a good one.

I can speak to the payment question. Bitcoin is probably the best payment method ever. The downside is its volitility. Getting started with bitcoin is very easy. Just YouTube bitcoin starter guide and you can get set up. Setting up a bitcoin payment system takes very little time.
PayPal doesn't like kratom, it you can accept payments by sending invoices. As long as your customer doesn't write kratom in the services field you're ok. But for high volumes it's not a permanent solution.
It seems like overseas credit card processing services are a decent choice. But they seem to charge a high fee, and customers might get a suspicious activity alert on their cards.
Pardon the grammar. This was typed on my phone.
I know some vendors accept paypal. One vendor sells their kratom as Asian Teas. Another vendor sells them as sunglasses.
